U.S. Versus Them: How a Half-Century of Conservatism Has Undermined America's Security - hardcover

2008, ISBN: 0670018821

ID: 14709368953

[EAN: 9780670018826], [PU: Viking Adult], Political Science|General, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: This cogent first book from the executive editor of the New Republic forcefully argues that 50 years of American conservatism have undermined U.S. security and pushed the world to the brink of nuclear disaster. Scoblic charts the course of American conservatism, from its development by William F. Buckley Jr. through the disastrous Cold War to Bush's failure to safeguard the United States after 9/11: in stark, often frightening detail, Scoblic examines how Bush embraced regime change as a means of fighting evil and neglected to secure nuclear materials in the former Soviet Union, failed to prevent North Korea from reprocessing plutonium, rebuffed requests for negotiations from an Iranian regime that was, in 2003, willing to comply with the International Atomic Energy Agency, repeatedly ignored U.S. intelligence and pursued the war in Iraq. Scoblic illustrates how and why conservatism shaped the current administration and explains how it guided Bush's good vs. evil morality. This is an important book, well researched and well reasoned in its assessment of conservatism and mandatory reading for anyone concerned with America's security and future. Publishers Weekly(starred) J. Peter Scoblics rollicking indictment of how conservatives have undermined Americas security since the dawn of the nuclear era is intellectual history at its best. Scoblic shows us that a ship of fools is afloat, still navigating us all toward catastrophe. It is a shocking and even sordid tale told with calm logic and clear prose. Every informed citizen should pick up this bookbut the next president should not occupy the Oval Office without first reading U.S. Vs. Them. Kai Bird, coauthor with Martin J. Sherwin of the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer In this highly original study, part history, part current analysis, J. Peter Scoblic reveals the deep fear disguised as uncompromising idealism that has propelled the American conservative movement to promote its disastrous foreign policies. Us Vs. Themis a clear, succinct guidebook to the troubled first decade of the twenty-first century. Richard Rhodes, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomband author of Arsenals of Folly: The Making of the Atomic Arms Race J. Peter Scoblic is one of the freshest voices on U.S. foreign policy, and hes addressing a subject of existential importance. His distinctive take on the origins of George Bushs arms control policiesand why theyve produced catastrophic resultsbelongs on the reading list of anyone trying to understand why a zero-sum approach to the world wont work in the twenty-first century. Robert Wright, author of Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny A penetrating and provocative critique of a worldview that has brought the United States a world of trouble. Strobe Talbott, former deputy secretary of state, and author of The Great Experiment: The Story of Ancient Empires, Modern States, and the Quest for a Global Nation In U.S. Vs. Them, Peter Scoblic challenges the assumptions and policies of the Bush administration on nuclear strategy. The book describes the contrasting views of conservatives and liberals on arms control as they have evolved over the past several decades. To understand todays news stories about North Korea and Iran, one must understand the policy battles and the history that Scoblic lays out in this book.
